    LotM needed a Female Elf, so I made a female elf and gave her the lame, unimaginative name of "Elf Defender." Enjoy!

    Yay! I could do without the wonky sword, but this is a welcome addition to the mod. I particularly like the sweeping attack animation.

    I think you can still edit the title though if it's soon enough.

    Good job BTW. :thumbsup:

    nice unit, I like the animations...

    well names must agree this is always a pain to name your unit....after I create something I sit down and have a converstaion with myself:

    hmmm Rm80 what is it that you really have created?

    hmmm it looks like I have made some sort of conan rip-off barbarian kinda unit...

    great then his name will be "conan rip-off barbarian kinda unit" what do you think of that RM80?

    I love it....

    :D

    Nice elf chick :) Thats Victoria there, I presume? While you are editing the title, name her Female Elf Defender? Or Elven Defenderess of Ultra Hotness and Deadlyness?

    I have to say that this is quite a well done unit. I especially like the attack - from the stance to the motion, it is both well done and original.

    "wonky sword?" I thought it looked "wicked bad" myself.

    @Odin: Yeah, It's the PDF. I took the shirt from the Aiel figure, a PDM kilt (with help from Plotinus on resizing it properly) and you got one elf chick!

    Olorin0222... Good Work on this Female Elf Defender. Names are not a problem since people usually change unit names to suit what they want for their games anyway. :goodjob:

    I always though of elves having "wonky" swords... Though a bit longer...

    Elves are the idealised, perfected humanity of a mythical heroic age for Northwestern Europe. Tolkien explicitly linked this to the period roughly between the Fall of the Western Roman Empire and the Battle of Hastings. Not likely to be many wonky swords in that kind of setting.

    Huh? I didn`t know that.. Its very confusing.. considering that the LotR history spans over thousands of years...

    Fair enough, but for one, mythic time isn't equivalent to chronological, historical time. It's like an eternal present, I suppose. Oddly enough, it just dawns on me now that this would help explain why we see so little "advancement" in Middle-Earth over those thousands of years. But I digress...

    Well, if they're perfect, of course they're going to have cool swords!
